Castleford Tigers have granted centre Jake Mamo leave to return to Australia on compassionate grounds.
Mamo, 27, will miss the club’s next two Super League matches against Wigan and Toulouse.
He made the move to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle ahead of the 2022 campaign on a three-year contract.
The former NRL full-back has made 10 Super League appearances under Lee Radford so far in 2022 at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.
